A White House petition to deport singer Justin Bieber and revoke his green card has surpassed the 100,000 signatures it needs for an official response. 

Bieber, 19, was arrested in Miami, Fla., last Thursday and charged with driving while intoxicated and resisting arrest.

That same day, a White House petition was created to deport Bieber and reverse the status of his green card. The pop star is Canadian.

“We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture. We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing, Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked. He is not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our nations youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society,” the petition says on the White House website. 

As of Wednesday afternoon, the petition received nearly 109,000 signatures.

The petition needed to receive at least 100,000 signatures by Feb. 12 in order to receive a response from the White House.

The White House has not yet responded. 

Police allege Bieber had beer, prescription drugs and marijuana in his system when he was arrested on Jan. 23. Officials say his blood alcohol level was .04, which is illegal for those who are underage. He was released after he posted $2,500 bail.

The pop singer was raised in Ontario, Canada, and has been living in the United States on a visa.

He will be arraigned on Feb. 14.
